Building a wireless robotic car using PIC microcontroller 16F877.

  1. Nov 28, 2009 #1
    I have a few questions.

    1. Which programming language should I use? I am thinking of using C++. I know assembly but am not very good at it, so I am trying to avoid assembly.

    2. Which program should i use to compile the PIC code? I am thinking of using MPLAB IDE. Is it sufficient/ok?

    3. Is 16F877 enough to build a wireless robotic car? It was recommended by my lecturer. But i need further confirmation.

    4. Which wireless module should I use? For this one, I have no idea at all.

    I hope you all can help me with this. Your help is needed. Thank you.

    Best Regards,

    you could try this out:
    http://www.rampagingchariots.org.uk/technical/Instruction_Booklet.pdf [Broken]

    pages 55-58 might be of interest to you

    they wouldnt give me the (assembly) source code to modify it after i built it a few years ago sadly
